I first visited North Wheddon farm with my daughter, 7 years ago, and stayed B&B. This was such an enjoyable experience that I have intended a second visit ever since to show my husband this fantastic place. This September, we stayed in Farthingwood Barn with a couple of friends and our dogs. Rachael and Julian were the perfect hosts and made us welcome from day one. Nothing was too much trouble and we had a 'welcome pack' of home-made bread, their own sausages and eggs. The setting is idyllic, with no light pollution, the barn extremely comfortable and is home from home with all the amenities you could want. The service and food in their own restaurant is well worth experiencing, as is the local pub. The farm is ideally placed to visit Exmoor and the Devon and Somerset coasts. There are many interesting places to visit from here - a week is not long enough! But you don't have to leave the farm to enjoy the countryside and peace of this place - it is all there on your doorstep!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- North Wheddon Farm is an ideal base to access the Exmoor and Devon area with it's fantastic beaches and stunning scenery just minutes way. We offer superb bed and breakfast accommodation within the farmhouse. In the grounds of the farm we have two self-catering properties, the Farthingwood Barn and the Eden Lodge.Here at North Wheddon we love to cook and are proud of our reputation. Food is very much 'River Cottage' style. If we can not grow it or raise it here on the farm, you can be sure it is locally sourced and the very best of quality. From home smoked bacon to our own Aga baked breads you won't go hungry. ... more less
